KILL(3PVM)			PVM Version 3.4			    KILL(3PVM)

NAME
       pvm_kill	- Terminates a specified PVM process.

SYNOPSIS
       C    int	info = pvm_kill( int tid )

       Fortran	 call pvmfkill(	tid, info )

PARAMETERS
       tid     Integer	task  identifier  of the PVM process to	be killed (not
	       yourself).

       info    Integer status code returned by the routine.  Values less  than
	       zero indicate an	error.

DESCRIPTION
       The  routine  pvm_kill  sends  a	 terminate (SIGTERM) signal to the PVM
       process identified by tid.  In the case of multiprocessors  the	termi-
       nate  signal  is	 replaced  with	 a host	dependent method for killing a
       process.	 If pvm_kill is	successful, info will be 0. If some error  oc-
       curs then info will be <	0.

       pvm_kill	is not designed	to kill	the calling process.  To kill yourself
       in C call pvm_exit() followed by	exit().	 To kill yourself  in  Fortran
       call pvmfexit followed by stop.

EXAMPLES
       C:
	    info = pvm_kill( tid );

       Fortran:
	    CALL PVMFKILL( TID,	INFO )

ERRORS
       These error conditions can be returned by pvm_kill

       PvmBadParam
	      giving an	invalid	tid value.

       PvmSysErr
	      pvmd not responding.
